This goes right along with the victim complex, though it is a little different. People who deal with learned helplessness always feel that they are powerless in their own lives. They have victim mentality but rather than just viewing external causes as the source of their problems, they also feel that they have no power to change this or stop it from happening.

Defensive Personality

This is a person who is always quick to react in self defense when something is said. They may take the smallest comment, even one that was not intended as an insult as a personal affront and retaliate against another. It is easy to see the connection with the personality complex because these people often feel that they are being persecuted which allows them to be defensive in their life.

Is There a Treatment for Persecution Complex?

As far as science and modern psychology can tell, this is a learned behavior that people go through. Therefore, it stands to reason that it can be treated. With that being said, it is important to note that this is not as simple as you may think. This is because in order for a person to get help for this condition, they must first admit that it is something they are suffering from. It is hard for most people to see their own shortfalls, especially when it comes to this. The other reason why it is so difficult to understand the full extent of the treatment needed is that it will vary from person to person.

Once a person recognizes that they are dealing with this or any other psychological issue, the first step is to see a mental health professional. When an appointment is made, the person will be evaluated. This will allow the psychiatrist, psychologist or other mental health care providers to assess the issues the person is dealing with so they can create an appropriate course of action.

There are several treatments that may be used to help people overcome their persecution complex. For those with schizophrenia, anxiety or other issues that are contributing to this, there are medications that can help. Therapy is another way that this is treated. Cognitive and behavioral therapy are excellent ways of helping people with these conditions. These are therapies that help people to recognize when they are applying persecution complex in their life and find ways to change the thought process on their life. If the persecution is real, then therapists can help a person understand the best way to handle the situation.

The thing to keep in mind with this condition is that it is not something that can be changed overnight. Rather it can take months or years for a person to overcome this. It is really dependent on the person and how deep seeded their persecution complex goes. If it is something they have experienced from the time they are a child, then it may be harder to overcome than someone who has only been going through it for a few years. Also, each person is different in the way that they handle their emotions and behaviors which is why there is no way to predict how long psychological treatment will take.

Persecution complex may seem like a harmless condition that people suffer from, but the truth of the matter is that it can keep them from living their lives to the fullest. They may live in fear of certain people and avoid situations just so that they do not have to confront the person or group they feel persecuted by. This is why it is important for people with this condition to get the help they need.





Twelve-step programs

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

twelve-step program is a set of guiding principles outlining a course of action for recovery from addictioncompulsion, or other behavioral problems. Originally proposed by Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) as a method of recovery from alcoholism,[1] the Twelve Steps were first published in the 1939 book Alcoholics Anonymous: The Story of How More Than One Hundred Men Have Recovered from Alcoholism.[2] The method was adapted and became the foundation of other twelve-step programs.

As summarized by the American Psychological Association, the process involves the following:[1]

  • admitting that one cannot control one's alcoholism, addiction or compulsion;
  • recognizing a higher power that can give strength;
  • examining past errors with the help of a sponsor (experienced member);
  • making amends for these errors;
  • learning to live a new life with a new code of behavior;
  • helping others who suffer from the same alcoholism, addictions or compulsions.
